Plano Middle School is run along Montessori principles. What this means is that our students are encouraged not only to develop the skills needed to achieve good academic results, but also to grow in self-esteem and self-confidence, developing a love of learning and the curiosity to always find out more. We pride ourselves on high academic standards, at the same time as valuing the individuality and potential of each student.
One of the major advantages of the Montessori system is that it allows each student to learn in their own way. Following the daily “big lesson”, children are able to explore the themes which have been presented in their own way. This freedom in method of learning enables every child to use the material in a way that's relevant and valuable to them, helping them to learn the study skills necessary to maximize their potential.
We have the resources to provide a good ratio of pupils to staff, and a wealth of learning resources which help to make each day at school a pleasurable experience that's packed with opportunities to learn. Culturally diverse and with an ethos that celebrates difference, we welcome students from all backgrounds who wish to join our school community.
A number of parents feel that private schooling offers their children the best start in life, equipping them with the skills they need to become successful learners and caring, empathetic and responsible citizens. The Montessori approach can work well for any child, regardless of their academic ability. To find out more about our school and what it could offer for your child, call us at (214) 802-7770.
